A Stockton man admitted possession of 38.5g of amphetemine and a quantity of cannabis when he appeared in court today (Tuesday, November 20).

The drugs were found after Craig Lawrence, 42, of Cowshill Green, was stopped by police in Darlington on August 17.

He admitted further charges of driving without third party insurance, driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

Darlington magistrates fined him £110, added six points to his licence and handed him a 12-month conditional discharge.
